JULIA HAWKINS — “HURRICANE HAWK” AND DIANE FRIEDMAN — “THE FLASH”

“I wanted less than a minute.”

“I WANTED LESS THAN A MINUTE.”

This seems like a perfectly legitimate request, coming from anyone.

Occasionally, you need just a minute to do — or maybe to finish — something.

What if you’re 105 years old?

One might think then, that perhaps more than a minute would be helpful, especially with that kind of mileage on your odometer.

Sounds reasonable, right?
